here. and i can see law enforcement up on the road, that you can see they're flashing blue and red lights. and yes, some people have evacuated. but they assure us that as long as you're above the first floor floors of this hotel, which is eight floors high, you should be fine. i'm actually, as i say, on the roof of the hotel overlooking the beach. there doesn't seem to be too much fear here. it's not -- these where i am, it's not a long trek to get out of the tsunami zone. and, you know, it's very well marked. the hawaiian authorities and civil defense here are well-prepared for this sort of thing. they deal with it somewhat frequently. and the protocol and the procedures they have in place are pretty well understood by the populace here. >> folks that have come to the hotel perhaps to stay at higher ground, do they know how long they may have to stay there as far as until they're given the all-clear? have you been told how this will play out? >> no, i'm not sure that they have. i'm not sure that anybody truly knows that, aside from it could last for several hours. but, you know, t
anything. that is the law of the state of ohio. i am the administer of the law. we have strict laws in regarding this. i have some latitude in setting uniform hours. but what we really like is the more people that vote early, the fewer people show up on election day and that means we have shorterlines at the polls because most people have already cast their ballots. or at least a lot of them. >> a lot of them, yeah. 1.3 million absentee ballots were requested. that's an issue because of the provisional ballots. if the people who said yes, i do want an absentee ballot don't turn it in and go to the polls and vote, then they'll have to do a provisional ballot. >> well, first of all, we want voters who requested their ballot to turn them in. we encourage them to do that. right now, we're at 8 pe85 perc of them have returned. and we think that the number could actually be smaller than it was the last time. so we're not concerned about that. >> we are because we're here and you can't count those ballots or those votes until november 17th. i'm joking, but the whole country could be waitin
center for justice, 14 states have laws restricting voter registration drive, early voting, forcing some voters to show an idea. those 14 states are worth 185 electoral votes, 68% of what's needed to win. so, is voting fraud a big problem? will what i just said affect the election? nicole austin hilary joins us from washington this morning. good morning. >> good morning, carol. >> let's talk about these new laws put in place in many states across the nation. how will this affect voting tuesday? >> in 2011, the brennan center issued a report. when we first saw the onslaught of these laws being introduced across the country. we were extremely worried because it looked like up to 5 million voters would be impacted by these laws in such a way where many of them might have their right to vote encumbered. we issued a new report, however, a year later. it just came out last week -- early this week that showed that because of the pushback that happened across the country, because of the department of justice, citizen referenda, court and other initiatives, there has been a great deal of success
the deficit, eliminate the president's health care law if he's elected president of the united states, and he's also going at what he believes to be a problem for the president in the final days of the campaign. he's been saying that the president has not been living up to his promises of bipartisanship in washington, and romney says if he's elected president, he will bring the country together. here's what he had to say. >> he said he was going to be a post partisan president. he has been most partisan in dividing and attacking. he also said he would cut the deficit in half. he doubled it. he was going to get unemployment down to 5.2% right now. we just learned on friday it's up to 7.9%. >> earlier in the day, the candidate's wife, ann romney, visited the back of the campaign plane and handed out breakfast food to the reporters covering the race for the last year and a half. asked how she's feeling about the race, she said she's been touched by the people she's run across in the final weeks of the campaign. people have come up to her and told her about their struggles in this economy right n
? >> well, don's it -- don it is easy if there is a state law that says you can change the election date in the state of an emergency, the law that says you can add a voting day if fewer than 25% of voters cast ballots, due to an emergency. otherwise, there are big challenges, secretary of state in connecticut, denise merrill was on cnn a little while ago. she said she did a tour of places like greenwitch, bringport, finding a lot of elderly people clustered along the shoreline. concerns that some are still in shelters, people have no power, so polling is one of those issues that sort of goes farther down on the list. and if you listen here for just a moment, you can hear her talking about that. >> and i did a tour yesterday of places like greenwitch, and our biggest city like bridgeport, where there are frail, elderly people, there are concerns there, some are still in shelters. many don't have power, we do have power at most of of the polling places but i think there are concerns about actually reaching people and getting them to vote. >> and don, some of the states affected by the sto

most of our constitutional laws don't give the government-elected officials the authority to force people to leave, so what government does do is control the transportation, control the roads, control the buildings. so this is a way to encourage people to leave. >> and when they tell you, you know, to basically get out, that means to get out because they have done all they can. and someone like chris christie, we have the box on the screen because we are waiting on chris christie, the governor of new jersey, he said it last time with a hurricane barreling to new york and new jersey. i'm telling you, get out if you don't. i'm paraphrasing, you are not right, i don't want to say a bad word to people. you have this new book called "leadership" and making decisions in the wake of katrina and other decisions you have made. as you're watching this preparation and watching people like michael bloomberg, people down on the coast, are they making the right decisions? >> they are going in the right direction. in today's world, we have large numbers of people living in concentrated areas and

signed in to law in massachusetts and then goes on to explain why he believes the president while by no means perfect taken right decisions on a whole bunch of issues and as a result he feels more comfortable and he says the president deserves four more years in the white house and a significant endorsement of the mayor of new york. >> how significant? i asked how significant is endorsements? in this case, this is the mayor of new york city. how big could this be for the president? >> well, the president's going to carry new york state to begin with. so that -- doesn't necessarily have a huge impact in new york because it goes without saying. the president will carry new york and california. mitt romney will carry texas. those states are not in play right now so it's in terms of an immediate impact but the battleground states, widely admired. people that don't like necessarily democrats or republicans, they look to see who's the best candidate and i think michael bloomberg has sway potentially. if it's a close race in ohio, virginia or nevada, maybe anything could have an impact o

, at this point, right? nothing has been proven in a court of law. but they are terrible murders committed by young boys, 15 and 17 years old. so for these mothers to do this, heartbreaking. >> what type of charges will they face? >> i think they will, based on the terrible crimes, when we talk about little autumn, the boys there are 15 and 17. so they are close enough that they can go into court and ask permission of the judge to transfer them into the adult system out of the juvenile court system. and because of the terrible crime, they actually lured this little girl there, because she was into bikes. she had a bmx bike, so they lured her there because they wanted it. there was what we call aggravating circumstances in the murder. and we know the allegations in the ridgeway case is sadly, the little girl was dismembered, not found intact. so again, aggravating circumstances, they will seek to try them as adults. >> terrible, one woman in louisiana said she was set on fire by white supremacists, but now, police say she actually inflicted the injuries herself. she was in the back of the c
